For today...

Outside my window...cold, nasty, rainy
I am thinking...of how complicated life and relationships can be

I am thankful for...listening ears that really hear what I am saying
From the learning rooms...schoolwork, Bible reading, crafting

From the kitchen...Spaghetti for dinner tonight
I am wearing...khaki shirt, maroon sweater

I am creating...working on Psalm 23 picture, finished my 2nd Christmas gift last night
I am going...to dance for the girls; Sam's today

I am reading... "The Second Mayflower" by Kevin Swanson, finishing 2 Samuel in the Old Testament, and "The Backyard Homestead"
I am praying...about the Haiti Mission Trip this summer and for JoAnne (if you haven't been to her blog yet, click on her button on my right side bar ~ this family is experiencing Miracle after Miracle)

I am hearing...dogs, kids, cars, pages turning, fingers typing, washer running
Around the house...Cold Season is here ~ lots of Vitamin C, hot drinks, and klennex

A few plans for the rest of the week... dance classes, cooking church dinner tomorrow night, co-op class, Greg's birthday!
Pictures to share...
the Chihuahua Family...its hard to get 4 dogs to sit still
 My new pantry!
Shelves filling up with cooking utensils and food

Canning jars waiting for summertime

buckets of Wheat & Sugar ready for baking!
Please join Peggy at
 to read more daybooks!
Hope everyone has a happy Tuesday! 


  1. If you get the 4 dogs to sit still, Amy sneaks up and turns on the vibrator in the chair to scare the little dears. I don't know where she could come up with an idea like that!


  2. I am incredibly jealous of your new pantry! I have so little storage space in my house and what I do have isn't being used very well. Maybe you need to come be my storage mentor!

  3. Amy gets her "best", "sneaky" ideas from her Daddy!

    Jennifer...you saw the junk that came out of there! We are still sorting through it. There are 4 pain cans hiding behind the door ~ right now, there is no place else to put them. My roaster was under the bathroom sink, the drinks were stacked in the laundry room or garage, etc. It is so nice to have a "home" for this stuff now! And I understand about space not being used well ~ I've still got plenty of that here.

  4. Love, Love, Love the pantry. (And the dogs are pretty cute, too!)

  5. wow! your pantry looks great. congratulations. and the doggies look soooo cute.


Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
